Probably been asked before but worded different but here goes;

I wanted to try a CD2 and went to the local disc shop, saw about 20 Roaming Thunder 2s on the shelf, all were the color of faded cat barf or in simpler terms "lost", why?

needless to say I passed on a purchase

Innova swirl game rn

I think we'll see a lot less next year. Probably see other stuff instead.

I'm bummed because it's sometimes my only chance to get a favorite disc in SLine... *Cough* S-P1x *cough* S-MD

Weird thing is Innova used to have some nice swirls back in the day, seemingly unintentionally. Idk how they can still be failing at their swirly production runs.

If you check out OTB Discs, they’ve been putting up a ton of beautiful swirly FD’s with a variety of stamps. Some are boring but mostly they’ve been on par with some Discraft swirls or prodigy spectrum stuff

I tried one out and loved it, so I bit the bullet and went for the lightest colors I could find for a couple back ups. It sucks that the colors aren't great, but I do really love the feel of the plastic over the stock S-line.

Supreme flight actually has a few S-P1xes left. I thought about snagging them, but this year I found that I prefer a beat in P2 for that slot.

Those can be found if you really want em. Havent seen them pull a huge price in the FB markets, although that is based on Finnish data

I love the Method a lot, if you can't tell.
We're glad you like it! That's probably a pretty spot on analysis. The Method in general is by no means a meathook. They start off pretty overstable but will definitely beat in eventually to give some turn, sometimes more than you would like on the occasional throw, but overall they are very reliable and can handle some pretty good torque while still offering a smooth fade at the end.

The online presence of buyers through social media showcasing discs has certainly shed a new light on the collector market for sure. We'll make sure to get some good R&D in during this off season and see if we can come up with something special. It's time to Reinvent our Game as well.
